. and miguel marquez joins us from denver. he's been traveling all over the u.s. talking to voters. he was just in my home state of iowa. economy the most important issue for americans. 48% registered voters put the economy at the top. budget, health care, education, all of them up there. what are you hearing from the undecided voters? what is going to make them make up their mind? >> well, let's be fair. they're a small piece of the pie. if you're in florida or virginia or ohio, states that are not decided, you could actually decide this election. and what these undecided voters seem to want is specifics. they don't want the promises they have been through the last four years. they're prepared to do the hard math. they want to see the actual equation. they don't want to hear 12 million jobs in four years, they want to hear exactly how you create 12 million jobs in four years. they don't want to hear tax cuts or 1 million more manufacturing jobs, they want to know specifically how you're going to do it. from mitt romney, they want to see the math, and from barack obama they want to see, hey, yo

and plain ole fiscal irresponsibility and sound familiar? today the u.s. has record debt, $16 trillion and fuelled in part by stimulus spending and tax breaks for everyone and expensive wars abroad and whose fault is that? >> the president's policies have not gotten america working again. >> our goal was to turn it around. >> and the president has to stand up to take responsibility for it. >> we inherited the worst economic and financial crisis since the great depression. >> reporter: but what matters more is how we fix it. it is time to rebuild rome and here how we do it. first, do everything possible to put americans back to work, because nothing is more important to the recovery than reyating job, and revamp the workforce which means to revamp the schools and colleges to turn out workers who can compete in the labor force of tomorrow. and reduce the long-term debt and deficit and implement a plan thou to pay back what we owe instead of dumping on future generations. so who has the best plan to fix america over the next four years and beyond? that is is the question to ask for the gl

done something else. when you have a deep financial crisis, you look at u.s. history, you look at other countries, it's very hard to come roaring back. >> the world's leading experts on financial crises and rehko recoveries says mitt romney's advisers are wrong. doesn't he deserve a second term? >> ken is right. it takes seven years to come out of recession from a debt and de-leveraging recession. did president obama make it worse? here's my indictment. my suggestion is by focusing on health care, reforming the health care market in the first year, he caused a huge distraction in the market and that's what set the recovery back. >> well, let's give him credit though for focusing on the stimulus first, which a lot of people argued helped. you put all the charts there together. here's the stimulus, here's the bottom and then there we come up on all the charts. can you say, okay, would have happened anyway, maybe. we'll never be able to prove it. >> economics is maybe. seen it on "business insider." all the charts are up. that's great. stimulus one thing among plenty like the federal reser

here in the u.s., were consumed it. we exported it because nobody else was doing it. we are not going back to a world in which we will have a monopoly on industrial production. in fact, it's the opposite. everybody else now hats hardware to make all the stuff that we did, so it is much more of a challenge to just say, you know, we're going to do these sort of three things that we did back in the '40s and '50s and that will magically bring back all these jobs. >> candy, both candidates have had some trouble with messaging, especially when addressing middle class voters. a month to go. what does the middle class want to hear? >> they want to hear that the job market is getting better. they want to hear that their house is not under threat of being foreclosed upon. they want to hear that -- that some kind of plan that makes them feel that their fifth grader is going to go on to college. they want, you know, just to put it like in cliche terms, they want to know the american dream. they want to know that there will be something there for retirement, that they don't have to work until they
